This technology is called tungsten powder metallurgy

Tungsten products are made from tungsten powder and not through the conventional manufacturing process of melting and casting. This is due to the powders extremely high melting point.

This technology is called tungsten powder metallurgy and consists of pressing powder into parts, sintering and then machining to the desired form.

Quality powder is an essential part of tungsten alloy production. The powder’s properties can impact the properties in proceeding manufacturing processes such as pressing and sintering. This affects the quality of the end tungsten alloy components.

Tungsten powder characteristics like average grain size and particle size distribution can be regulated by manipulating the reduction parameters. This is particularly true when it comes to temperature and humidity.
